Hmm, maybe we need to somehow add a live Kickstarter ticker feed to the site to save ourselves a trinity of blogging. The ritual seems to be: 1) news of returning dev/series via crowdsourcing 2) interview with said dev 3) news that funding targets have been reached. Reaching step 3 today is Jane ‘Gabriel Knight’ Jensen, whose new studio Pinkerton Road is working on GK-inspired supernatural pointer-clickerer Moebius.
Pinkerton’s Kickstarter has reached $312,000 of its $300,000 target, with 11 days left on the clock. Obviously, they’d like more, so they’ve added assorted new tiers and rewards including ebook version of the old Gabriel Knight novels, design bibles and all sorts. Also revealed is that Pinkerton is working on another, more conventionally-funded adventure game, which copies of are available to Moebius funders who lob $50 into that hat (to get both) or $16 (to choose one or the other game). Vidja-based details below.
A little more on Moebius, and on project 2:
And a peek at Pinkerton’s dev process:
What a lot of adventure games we’re going to see in 2012/13. I thought they were supposed to be dead? (Runs).
